  • Happy for him. Just wish the show didn’t duplicate the name of the awesome web series ‘Venice.’

  • Yea for Michael, hope this does get picked up.

    Morgen – I know defending the honor is important, but you know the official imdb listing for that is “Venice the Series” right? while similar, it doesn’t duplicate.
